We often see that cell reception in buildings that are made with metal roof and walls are very weak. This is mainly because metals can reflect radio signals, including the cell phone frequencies. This causes weak cell reception inside the building that leads to dropped calls, undelivered text messages and slow internet speed.
Installing a signal booster in the building can solve this problem. A signal booster will improve the signal strength inside the building and gives you an unrestricted access to internet, and avoid dropped calls.
Cell Phone Booster For Metal Buildings
Many buildings are made with steel or aluminum walls. These metals are very good at blocking wireless signals. It doesn’t matter if you have a strong cell phone signal outside the building, these metals will reflect those signals. If you really need to improve the cell phone signal inside a metal building, you should install a cell phone signal booster system in the building.
The signal booster system will provide a good cell reception for the multiple cell phones inside the building; by increasing the strength of the cell signal. They will also improve the cell signal to a cellular router and increase the data speeds. Cell phone signal booster systems use a roof-mounted antenna that collects the available outside signal, and then send that signal to an amplifier for increasing the signal strength.
Working Of Signal Booster In A Metal Building
Like most of the other signal boosters, a building signal booster also consists of three main parts; an outside antenna, signal amplifier and an inside antenna. The outside antenna is placed in the roof of the building and its catches the outside cell signals. These signals are then relayed inside the building through a coaxial cable. The cable is connected to a signal amplifier placed inside the building. The signal amplifier boosts the signal many fold. The boosted signal is then rebroadcasted by the interior antenna.
To get a good cell signal in maximum area inside the building, you will need good outdoor signal strength and all the important components of the booster system. If you are getting at least three bars, you will get a good coverage. Always mount the outside antenna where the signal strength is very strong. Usually you will get a strong signal on the top floor of the building or on the roof. Sometimes, you may need to install more than one signal booster system to cover very large buildings.
